Brassed Off

Porirua Little Theatre are proud to be working on our next big project with the Trust Porirua City Brass.  “Brassed Off” is a touching drama marking the struggle of the men and woman in the mining town of Grimley.

With a possible 1200 job losses looming and the mining town dying, can the local brass band keep it together to fulfil their dream to play at Albert Hall.

A play for 7 males and 5 females and a Brass Band!

Auditions 9 February 2020

Show dates 15 -25 April.

Monty Python's Spamalot

Directed by Jodie Mahan

Spamalot tells the legendary tale of King Arthur’s quest to find the Holy Grail. Inspired by the classic comedy film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the musical also diverts a bit from more traditional versions of the legend. Instead, Spamalot features shenanigans including a line of beautiful dancing girls, flatulent Frenchmen, and killer rabbits. Outside, there is plague with a 50% chance of pestilence and famine. Throughout the show, Arthur, traveling with his servant Patsy, recruits several knights to accompany him on his quest, including Sir Bedevere, Sir Robin, Sir Lancelot, and Sir Galahad. Besides the rabbits and farting Frenchman, they meet such characters as the Lady of the Lake, Prince Herbert, Tim the Enchanter, Not Dead Fred, the Black Knight, and the Knights who say Ni.

Auditions will be held in June - Keep an eye on our website or Facebook page for details.
